Default General Mechanism Of Cellular Aging Found; Tumor Suppressor Gene May Be Key



[Only registered users see links. ]

Three separate studies confirm a gene that suppresses tumor cell growth also plays a key role in aging. Teams from the medical schools at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Michigan and Harvard University observed similar results in pancreatic islet cells and brain and blood stem cells.

I guess this may not help us increase our aging as knocking down a tumour suppressor is not the best idea lol...
